Turns out the ferry to Ko Lipe is just a speed boat. There were only sixteen of us on board, flying across the water, excited and giddy to be speeding toward the pristine beaches of Thailand.
Ko Lipe is beautiful. It’s developed far more than I expected it to be, but apparently there’s been an enormous building boom in the last year alone. The secret is out. Here I thought I was outsmarting the crowds at Ko Phi Phi; seems many others had the same thought.
On that note, I met Amanda and Christian (from Barcelona) on the boat ride from Langkawi, who said they had come last year with the intention of staying a few nights and ended up staying for the duration of their Thailand holiday. They’re back again this year, and apparently there are far more people -- and prices to reflect this trend -- than last year. Not surprising, but not my favorite either.
